With rising environmental concerns and global warming, there is an increase demand for electricity and other alternative energy sources around the globe, to deliver clean, reliable and affordable energy. Energy industries encompass a broad group of sectors - oil and natural gas, coal, nuclear, wind, solar, hydro, geothermal etc. Each of these industries contain very different types of organizations, and what constitutes risk in wind projects is far different than in nuclear. But they all share a similar challenge; to produce more energy at a lower cost with fewer emissions.

Infrastructure Projects are largely intended to benefit the general public, and usually, the government is the Sponsor. Thus, Infrastructure Development Projects have a varied spectrum of Stakeholders. A delay in such Projects - for instance, the construction of a road, a power plant, or a water reservoir- can have negative implications for the population and may even result in political and economic issues at the national level. This webinar will look into various reasons for delays in infrastructure projects as well as mitigation proposals. Information Technology, Procurement, Production, Human Resources and even Consulting related projects are usually part of an Infrastructure Portfolio, so this Webinar is also relevant to professionals looking to improve these processes.

Assurance reviews are essential to the overall good governance of major public projects and programs; in this webinar, we explore some of the challenges around framing and implementing assurance review recommendations during the life-cycle. PMI have funded a research study led by The University of Hull, which seeks to uncover how the treatment of assurance review data influences recommendations and the subsequent actions (or inactions) that arise, using a definitive set of data. During the webinar, we will discuss some of the implications arising from the findings of this study, explore suggestions for improving current assurance processes in practice and identify recommendations for future research.
